I use an iPhone as my personal phone but the firm won't let us have them for business so we get the BB Bold for that purpose.

I text quite a bit and the iPhone is not an annoyance after maybe 2 weeks or so of getting used to it. I wouldn't let that deter you from getting it. However, if you use e-mail a lot, then go with the Blackberry. I really don't like sending e-mails on the iPhone because of the keyboard, it's considerably slower than a non-touchpad QWERTY.

But if you're getting a BB, I don't see the point of getting anything but the Bold to be honest. The Curve is as expensive as the iPhone, if not more, but it's not a 3G phone. Makes no sense at all to me to get that. Sure it's a bit smaller/sleeker but I think that you're getting an inferior phone and worse yet you're not saving any $.

well I use my phone to check emails but not to send them so I wouldn't be too worried about that with the iphone. My brother just got an iphone and loves it. I'm still not sure about the on screen only keyboard. But I have to wait a few more months before I can do this so maybe I'll just have to go to the stores and see the phones in person to help me decide.

Turning the phone sideways so that the keyboard is bigger.. iphone currently fails in that you can only text with the phone straight up, and the keys are therefore smaller and closer together. Yet you can turn the phone sideways for the internetz and the keyboard gets bigger that way.. makes no sense

So I have a 3G, I can do this update? I cant wait for this. Hell if I'm going to buy a whole new phone.
I'm actually kind of pissed, I paid $400 for this phone less than a year ago and now they're going to offer it for $99???

O2 in the UK are saying you got pay pay for the remaining cost of the contract if you want to upgrade to 3GS.

I got 10 months left. So £400 for an upgrade? 3GS is good but not worth that.

At least you did not pay $599 as the rest of the first people to get it....to then have it go down to $299 a few months later. People were pissed.

It's the consumer's fault though. They're in such a rush to buy the next best thing that they splurge on it because of hype, general excitement, etc...

Buying electronics is hard because it's always constantly evolving and better products are being put out for cheaper (especially regarding an Apple product), but it always pays to wait at least a month or so before buying a hot product to catch a cool deal or two or something.

Why pay full price for something you truly don't need when you can pay a fraction of it later?

Exactly.

Never buy the first generation on anything electronic, ever.

Case in point; the U2 limited edition iPod. I waited for the 4th generation (I think) to buy it and I got a much better unit.
